(SWEETWATER) - Michael Lowry, director of Monroe County Schools, died on Christmas Eve.

Assistant Director of Schools Tim Blankenship posted the announcement on the school system website:

"It is with a heavy heart that I write this email. Many of you may already know that our Director and friend Micheal L. Lowry passed away last night, 12/24/2013, 11:32pm at Sweetwater Hospital. You can take some solace in the good and lasting work that Mr. Lowry did in his too-brief lifetime. I ask each of you to keep Jan and Mia Sage in your prayers as they cope with the untimely loss of a husband and father.

I will post arrangements when they are completed."

The Monroe County School System serves approximately 5,500 students on twelve campuses in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade.
